Thursday, May 27, 2010      13 comments

Recently the husband and I have gotten into geocaching, and I wanted to spread the word about it in case anyone doesn't know already! Geocaching is a great way to find adventure in your own backyard. There are geocaches hidden all over the world... Read more

Well, I'm starting out on another weight loss challenge, again as a member of the Orange Tigers team (go tigers!). I've been dragging a bit on this whole weight loss thing lately, so this is an important blog post. I'm publicly recommitting ... ... Read more

I'm back from a super-fun and productive trip. Here's a little update from me! First I went to Utah for a photo shoot. Then I met my husband in Vegas and we partied pretty hard. In neither place was it really possible to eat well. I did the v... Read more
The Slippery Slope
Wednesday, April 28, 2010      8 comments

Well, here's my big confession: I goofed big-time this week, all week, on eating and exercise. I barely made it to the gym, and somehow that made me feel like eating more. Jellybeans and apple crisp snuck into my generally quite pristine diet (h... Read more

Remember my celebration last week of having kicked my tenth pound to the curb with a 2.4 pound loss? And how I entered into the healthy BMI range? Well, I'm up 3 pounds. Again. You know that song, "The Cat Came Back" by Fred Penner? Maybe y... Read more

I've really been working hard at this weight loss thing for close to five months now, and I'm really worried about losing my drive or my momentum. I haven't been as diligent this week in tracking my food or my workouts, and honestly, I haven't b... Read more

I am jumping for joy right now. I am dancing. I am over the moon. After four long months of hard work, I have finally broken the ten-pound barrier. That's right, I lost the tenth pound! As a matter of fact, I lost the eleventh and twelfth ... Read more

I have a friend called Cato. She's a fairly big girl, but according to the doc, she's just the right weight for her size. She's very healthy, has an active social life, and in general leads a pretty balanced life. I think we can all learn a thi... Read more

Some of you know I've been having a hard time with my weigh-ins. I've either seen the same number or HIGHER for three weeks now! I've gotten a lot of encouragement, and I know it's not all about the numbers on the scale, but some movement would ... Read more
Discouraged. Discouraged. Discouraged.

That's the only word I can come up with for how I feel about today's weigh-in. Last week was the same number as the week before; this week I'm UP 1.2 pounds. I honestly don't know what I'm doing wrong. I've been eating very well -- not perf... Read more

The brother-in-law and his girlfriend just came over to make us homemade pizza. There were two kinds of pizza: sausage and mozzarella with mushrooms and peppers, and pesto with feta and prosciutto. Oh. My. God. They were so good ... Read more
Eat to Save Your Life
Monday, March 29, 2010      5 comments

I'm a big Jamie Oliver fan and I recently discovered his Eat to Save Your Life show on YouTube (link below). I can't recommend this show enough -- it's just one episode, and I honestly believe that it should be mandatory viewing for every single... Read more
Podcast Review: Fat2Fit Radio
Friday, March 26, 2010      4 comments

I am the poster child for podcasts. I listen to photography podcasts, pet care podcasts, organizational podcasts (well, I download those but I don't really listen to them. If I did, perhaps I would be more organized.). I listen to podcasts from ... Read more
A letter to my Scale
Thursday, March 25, 2010      13 comments

Dear Scale, We've never been particularly good friends, you and I. We've had a lot of problems in the past -- I know I've sworn at you a few times and I've often hidden you away in the closet out of disgust. But since I started on this SparkPe... Read more
